Who Are We?

Solemn Declaration

IN the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

WE hereby make the following Solemn Declaration:

WE declare this Church to be, and desire that it shall continue, in communion with all faithful believers throughout the world, as an integral portion of the One Body of Christ composed of Churches which, united under the One Divine Head and in the fellowship of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, hold the One Faith revealed in Holy Writ, and defined in the Creeds as maintained by the undivided primitive Church in the undisputed Ecumenical Councils; receive the same Canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as containing all things necessary to salvation; teach the same Word of God; partake of the same Divinely ordained Sacraments, through the ministry of the same Apostolic Orders; and worship One God and Father through the same Lord Jesus Christ, by the same Holy and Divine Spirit who is given to them that believe to guide them into all truth.

And we are determined by the help of God to hold and maintain the Doctrine, Sacraments, and Discipline of Christ as the Lord hath commanded in his Holy Word, and as this Church hath received and set forth the same in ‘The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church, according to the use of the Church of England; together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, pointed as they are to be sung or said in Churches; and the Form and Manner of Making, Ordaining, and Consecrating of Bishops, Priests, and Deacons’; and in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion; and to transmit the same unimpaired to our posterity.

Who we are?

We are the Missionary Diocese of St. Luke the Evangelist — we are a ministry of traditional Anglican heritage that is not administratively tied to the Anglican Communion, the Anglican Church of Canada, nor any other body. We stand with classical Anglicans everywhere who hold to the historic orthodox Christian faith. We consider ourselves to be in communion with the Church Catholic down the ages and throughout the world.

In a nutshell

The written Word and the holy Sacraments are joined together and rightly proclaimed in the classic edition of the Book of Common Prayer (1962, Canada). Word and Sacrament point to God Almighty and glorify Him.


We hold to the three historic Creeds of the Church, namely Nicene Creed, St. Athanasius' Creed, and the Apostles' Creed.

Living our Faith: Rule of Life

Every Christian man or woman should from time to time frame for himself a rule of life in accordance with the precepts of the Gospel and the faith and order of the Church; wherein he may consider the following:

  • The regularity of his attendance at public worship and especially at the holy Communion.

  • The practice of private prayer, Bible-reading, and self-discipline.

  • Bringing the teaching and example of Christ into his everyday life.

  • The boldness of his spoken witness to his faith in Christ.

  • His personal service to the Church and the community.

  • The offering of money according to his means for the support of the work of the Church at home and overseas.
